There's some stuff still going on with these that I don't understand.
I took down a light string that worked and measured no continuity at the plug, so I plugged them in and they again worked, so I rechecked continuity and now I had a reading.
Maybe outdoor usage puts invisible tarnish on the metal that is penetrated by 120vac but not by ohmmeter test voltages.

I'll find out because I will be doing this test many times and getting extremely frustrated. But there is some logical pattern to these results, I just haven't found it yet.

This task got pre-empted by a bunch of other stuff. There are not enough hours in the day.

The mortality calculators on the Web give me 15 years and I'm beginning to doubt what I will get done in that time.

Getting up at 4:30 may help. That is AM, by the way.

I'm already slowing down, I can feel it. I'm no spring chicken any longer.
